These doughnuts have a great flavor without having to fry them. They come together so quickly on those busy mornings.—Eloise DeHoyos, Tracy, California


  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons whole milk
  • Butter, melted
  • Cinnamon-sugar


  1. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  2. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Dip doughnuts in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon-sugar. Serve warm.
